TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Richard [Tetley] Glazebrook, Chairman of the Physics Committee and FRS
Date16 September 1921
DescriptionInforms Sir Richard [Tetley] Glazebrook that it is necessary under the Standing Orders for the Bakerian Lecture to go to two referees. Suggests selecting one on the physical side and one on the chemical side. Notes that they have now received [Samuel Walter Johnson] Smith's reports on Dr. Guy Barlow's and H. B. Keene's, 'The experimental analysis of sound in air and water' and Dr. Barlow's 'The theory of analysis of an electric current by periodic interruption'. Explains that both are favourable, but recommend radical alterations to the format of the papers. Asks if Sir Glazebrook could read them and consider whether these alterations are necessary.
